Module 6: What is My Money Worth?

   In this module students will learn the basic concepts of currency exchange and how to calculate exchange rates for a variety of currencies.  In addition, we will take a look at international financial organizations that have been established to help countries create and participate in trade.  Using a wide range of resources and staying within a budget, students will plan and coordinate business travel arrangements for an international business trip.  Students will create a presentation that outlines the trip itinerary, accommodations, modes of transportation, food and entertainment venues, and a completed budget in both US dollars and the foreign exchange value.
